When I want my makeup to last all day or if I have a special event to attend, the original Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation ($42.00; available now in 42 shades) has become my go-to base. It’s crazy because I never would have thought to buy or try out this foundation myself. My mother went to an Estée Lauder counter and came home with a bottle that mismatched her complexion. Needless to say, it soon ended up in my possession but I had no idea what to do with it really. I knew that Double Wear was supposed to be amazing but in my mind it already had strikes against it. I thought of it as some kind of shellac that would only suffocate my skin.
